JVC logo

The JVC VN-H257VPBU is an outdoor-ready IP security camera which is part of JVC's Super LoLux IP camera range. This network camera delivers high-quality HD 1080p video footage at up to 30fps for a superior high image quality comparable with JVC's well-established CCD-based cameras. The IP camera is extremely light sensitive and is able to capture footage at light levels as low as 0.3 lux in colour and 0.03 lux in black and white.

JVC's Clear Logic Video Intelligence (CLVI) image processing technology compensates for and digitally removes haze, rain and smoke, while backlight compensation ensures detail is captured on objects in front of strong light sources. Edge recording to SD cards and NAS drives provide backup recording in the event of network downtime. Bi-directional audio allows speakers and microphones to enable interactive communication between users and subjects nearby.

The camera's robust IP66-rated outdoor housing is vandal-proof and tamper proof and the camera is compliant with both ONVIF and PSIA protocols, allowing it to be integrated with a wide variety of video surveillance applications and hardware.

Please note: This camera does not come with a power supply. Should you require a Power over Ethernet midspan, please select one from the options above.
